Hello lovely Batties, here’s a few more thoughts on the power of words. What we say and think can build up or tear down, ourselves and others. Words like: loathsome, vile, horrid, gloomy, moody, disgusting are very negative and have a certain energy that brings us down.
How often have you thought such words about yourself or said something in anger to another, instantly regretting it, but unable to take it back? The saying about ‘putting your foot in your mouth’ is quite ironic, if we could mange to put our foot in our mouths, we wouldn’t be able to speak such tosh! (Lol, there’s an image!)

It’s so easy to speak in haste, even in excitement we can blurt out the most inane remarks. The desire to fill in a ‘silence’ can also draw what can only be described as, ‘less than magic’ from our lips.
I’m sure that like me, many of you wish your words were a ‘healing balm’ in the lives of others. So Batties, b-r-e-a-t-h-e before you offer any advice or speak out in anger.
